's problems is he's not likeable enough and he may need to turn on the kind of easy ronald reagan charm which he deployed so successfully in debate. it's a fine line, isn't it, between being hard and aggressive and making a point, but also coming over as likeable. >> right. and piers, really, the way to deal with that, and i think this is true for any debate but especially one where the stakes are so high for the country, is to stick to what you want to do, to stick to the substance of the issues, where the country is with the bad economy, with the high deficit, and what you want to do about it. i think if you're passionate about that or a little bit angry or indignant about that, i think people understand, and i think that's what governor romney's going to do. >> you're a republican from missouri. of course another missouri republican, todd akin, has continued in his race. you opposed this to start with, now you're supporting him. he must be exasperated that he's still in this thing. >> well, i want change. i hope very much we can get change in the country and in the senate here in missouri.
